Occupying a spacious double lot in Denver, Colorado, this three-bedroom A-frame by midcentury architect Robert Morris was built in 1954, and stands today as a local landmark. Columns of slender windows appear to support the 16-foot-high pitched frame, while a band of glass slices the roof in half—and that's just the outside.
While the exterior is known to spark admiration, inside is where Morris’s talent truly shines. The 2,335-square-foot dwelling, with its free-flowing layout and harmonious blend of wood, brick, and glass, is built around an expansive living area located in the heart of the A-framed section.
The open living space sits directly beneath the band of glass along the roof, which also illuminates the room's wood-clad ceiling and walls. Throughout the years, the residence underwent several renovations, all of which were completed with an eye for the smallest of details in order to keep Morris’s intentions intact.
